    I just.... . did John watch any games, or see Rodgers ever? Or listen to the voicemail on Mort's phone or anything relevant to this situation? I say no.

    I agree with what he said, for the most part.

    This next year, Rodgers will be functional. Has a first year starter ever made it to the Superbowl? I am not positive but I don't think so.

    It definately hurts our chances and our management has already stated that.

    I still say look at Phillip Rivers in San Diego after Brees left. Granted they had LT, but it's not too far fetched

    Roethlisberger had two things that Rodgers doesn't, a dominant running game and a dominant defense.

    We can have both, but a couple of guys have to really step up in order to do so. Cliff Christl always said that people won't truly appreciate how great Favre was until he's gone. I guess we'll get to see whether he's right about that (I, for one, think he is).

    This is what the media is going to say. Prepare for an off season of Packer bashing because nobody believes in this team without Favre.

    To be fair, Clayton isn't saying they can't be good but he doesn't believe they'll be as good or elite in the NFC.

    Truth be told I think the Packers are going to be ok and should be favorite to win the division. With that said, with Favre I put us #3 behind Colts and Patriots going into the season. Without him, I drop the Packers behind Colts, Patriots, Chargers, Cowboys, Giants, and Jaguars for sure.

    Call me ignorant, optimistic, or just a Favre hater(you guys know I love him), but I see Favre's impact on this franchise as more of the sentimental kind.

    Rodge has, imo the same physical tools that Brett had last year, minus a few mph on the fastball. And Aaron is more mobile than Brett's been recently.

    Sure, Rodgers will have his mistakes. But I have high hopes for the D, and we saw what the ground game can do when the linemen execute. And we all know what our wideouts are capable of.

    IMO, this season's success depends more on team health than it does the ability of Rodgers vs. Favre.

    i agree with pack_in_black. My only concern w/ Rodgers is that he seems prone to injury, but as a back up, maybe you baby the scrapes on your knees or paper cuts a little more than if you're relied upon as the head cheese.

    It's only one game, but he performed admirably against Dallas, showed a lot of mobility and managed that particular game much better than Favre.

    From the limited performances we've seen from Aaron, I'm optomistic about the Packer's chances under him.

    Playing QB is more mental than physical. (See Michael Vick)
